About a month ago, one of the members of my hiking club mentioned to me that she heard about a new Yoga studio opening up in Maple Ridge called Body Positivity Yoga.......now with me being all about positivity, I just HAD to check this place out.
On April 10, the studio had their grande opening, so I popped by to check it out and I got a chance to meet the owner, Lisa Papez (aka The Fat Yogini). We chatted for a bit and I felt compelled to ask her if I could come back and interview her for this blog. She loved the idea and we set up a date for me to come back and do just that.
So take a few moments and enjoy meeting Lisa, learning about what Body Positivity means to her, why she calls herself the Fat Yogini and what is happening at her studio.
This is the blog post that I mentioned in the above video where Lisa talks about the origin of her name:
Now, to connect with Lisa and the yoga studio, here are the links:
The studio is located at:
So, if you have ever toyed with the thought of trying yoga, but felt too intimidated to go to what I would call a 'traditional' studio, this is THE place to go! All shapes, sizes, abilities and ages are welcomed with open arms here!!
